Romano Fenati back with Team Italia for 2013

After narrowly missing out on the accolade of ‘rookie of the year’ to Alex Rins after a close battle between the two this season, Italian teenager Romano Fenati can celebrate a secure future instead with the news he is confirmed to ride for his current team Team Italia FMI for the 2013 season.

The Italian teenager impressed in his rookie year with a string of strong results, including a race win at a wet Jerez and three further podium finishes.

Team Italia have made it their goal to nurture new Italian riders as there were few coming through the system after Andrea Iannone and the late Marco Simoncelli and have revealed that Fenati will have a new team mate next season in the shape of 15 year old Francesco Bagnaia, who will be sixteen during the winter break so able to race from the start of the season unlike new Marc VDS Moto3 signing Livio Loi or Eric Granado in this year’s Moto2 championship.

Bagnaia currently race in the CIV Moto3 Spanish championship and is third before the final round for the Monlau Competicion squad where he was the partner to championship winner Alex Marquez.
